JAMU – Fresh bottled shots or brew your own!

Long known for its disease preventing qualities and use in the treatment of serious illnesses by Indonesians, Jamu is a power packed herbal medicine that makes for an ideal daily health elixir.

Indonesia is a favourite destination for Western Australian’s so Jamu is more than likely a known and favoured juice for healthy getaway and spa retreating travellers.  Turmeric and ginger, unprocessed honey and citrus fruits such as lime, lemon or orange fruits make it a tasty and potent tonic.  Jamu is proven to enhance wellness and healing and now with Livity Jamu cold pressed juices it is convenient and hassle free straight from The Garden Basket fridge.  Valued by Luke, the owner of The Garden Basket, it is his daily energy booster and one he recommends for the early morning yoga go’ers on Station Road and hard-working blokes as a sugary energy drink replacement.

Jamu Health Benefits – The combination of turmeric, ginger and lemon are commonly used in detox programs for the liver, it is effective for reducing inflammation plus it is great to improve immunity and help fight bacteria.  There are known benefits from turmeric to women’s health and so jamu or fresh turmeric are a natural dietary inclusion for women of all ages.

BREW SOME GINGER TEA – a twist of lemon and a dash of raw honey!

Ginger Tea Health Benefits – Ginger is one of the most revered herbs in many traditional medicine modalities.  It is known to contain more than 12 types of antioxidants. The herb contains essential oil and nutrients like protein, phosphorus, calcium, vitamin C, folate and pantothenic acid. Its benefits include aiding digestion, alleviating nausea, and assisting inflammation disorders.

Ideally for this time of year it acts as an expectorant meaning it is great for loosening and expelling phlegm from the lungs.  Simply boiling ginger into a homemade jamu mix or soothing lemon and ginger tea can help the treatment of all respiratory disorders, and offers relief for asthma and sinusitis sufferers.  This humble herb is an amazing immune booster and a simple medicine for everyone to consume fresh or boiled in the cooler months.
